Why did you join the challenge? Running has always been my mental escape over the years where I could enjoy the beauty of God’s natural creation outside. I’ve incorporated prayers into my runs, but now I’m able to connect with a community of women who will encourage each other to make this the focus of our runs during the busy seasons of life.
It’s too late to join Lydia for the 2017 Advent #CatholicWomenRun challenge. But you can sign up here to receive an email when we have our next challenge.
